Federal criminal charges are complex and the most diffcult to defend.

This experience has given our firm the knowledge necessary to properly investigate and engage in discovery of these immensely complex cases. Additionally, Mr. Herz has become familiar with all players in the federal court system-- judges, prosecutors, agents and officers.

Armed with this knowledge, we are fully prepared to aggressively defend against nearly any federal criminal charge, including:

Federal white collar crimes
Asset forfeiture
Fish and game guiding violations
Federal drug crimes
Immigration law violations
